Annette Messager

Messager takes every day objects and materials such as soft toys, stuffed animals, fabrics, wool,
photographs, words and other media and transforms them to create extraordinary artworks. The
themes Messager examines are as wide-ranging as the materials she uses; from self-identity,
sexuality and the body, to explorations of life and death, good and evil, and human and animal. At
times humorous and playful, at times frightening and morbid, her works are characterised by a mixing
of differing perspectives, challenging the viewer to look at the world anew and confront the fears and
fantasies that lie beneath the surface of daily life.
